South Bay is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., 7 days a week. Inlet Bay ramp is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Larimer County does recommend these guidelines for using natural areas and open space: Please abide by the 6 ft. social distancing health guideline. Please keep groups to under 10 people. No congregating at overlooks or trailheads. Current campground spaces and cabin reservations have been cancelled and no further reservations can be made at this time. Webcams are available to help you find out how busy trails might be. If the parking is full, please move along to another location.
